Why the Putting Yips Show Up When It’s Important
Listen now
Description
In this episode, Dr. Cohn answers a question from a reader about why golfers get the putting yips when they think it's important to make putts. Here's the question of the week: PAUL: I’m a 10-12 handicap, 54 years old, play about twice a week, and I have the putting yips but, I don’t think it is about fear of embarrassment. Instead, it is about being seen as good by winning the match. The longer I wait my turn to putt, the worse it gets. When I don’t care about the putt—I’m out of the hole, then I have no issues. Only when it matters does the yips kick in. Peak Performance Sports, LLC helps athletes and performers improve mental skills for success in sports.
